Odontomas are the malformation of the dental tissues constituting for 22% of all the odontogenic tumors. Odontomas are benign, nonaggressive, sometimes interfering with the eruption of the associated tooth, leading to impaction or delayed eruption. They are usually painless with neuralgic symptoms presenting only on compression of nerves which is rare. Due to its limited growth potential, odontoma rarely shows their evidence, unless it is secondarily infected or causes complications such as displacement/uneruption of associated tooth, swelling, pus discharge, and esthetic problems which can be avoided on early diagnosis. The purpose of this article is to highlight on the notable presentation of complex odontoma with large swelling and abscess drainage in a very young patient.
